Right size for daily and great security...
This is my third Pacsafe product, so obviously, I'm drinking the Kool-aid. I've been using a smaller PacSafe Cross Body bag for quite some time. This bag has the same security features but is twice the size of my other PacSafe.
I live is a city that is notorious for pickpockets and bag thefts. Being a local confers some immunity, they prefer to prey on tourists who are less aware. However, should I become distracted for a moment, the security features on this bag are there to save me. At first the zipper closures seem a little inconvenient, but after a very short time their operation become 2nd nature.
I like the flap closure on the side, it dresses the bag up a bit. The zippers all can be closed to the same side and secured which creates a puzzle for any but the most persistent and proficient pickpocket. Even at that, I think they'd just move on to a less challenging target. I chose black because low-key is important to me and I appreciate that there is no bright logo advertising on the bag.
For improvements, it would be nice to see an option for a small pad on the strap. It would dress the bag a little more and add a bit of comfort. The bag is also bulkier when empty than I want. I imagine the exomesh is the reason for this, and I wouldn't go without the exomesh, but if it is possible to reduce the bulk without reducing the interior volume and features.... Yes, I want my cake and to eat it too! ;)
